Piper-Heidsieck Cuvée Brut

Champagne

This is the Signature cuvée of the House.  Round, vibrant and extremely well balanced, reflecting the rich variety of its blend of 100 crus from across the patchwork of Champagne vineyards.   It is a festive champagne, perfect for sharing and perfect for celebrating. A champagne to be enjoyed with friends, at a party or perhaps at a picnic along the water’s edge.

Tasting Notes

The Cuvée Brut takes us on a journey of almonds, fresh hazelnuts and fruits from the orchard, like freshly cut apples and pears. The wine also offers a smoky quality, almost toasted, which gives the impression of savouring a bite of freshly baked bread, just out of the oven. It is a precise wine, extremely well balanced, which offers plenty of finesse on the palate.

    "Lithe and vibrant, this graceful Champagne is driven by well-knit, racy acidity, carrying flavors of ripe black cherry, grated ginger, toast point and mineral on the satiny mousse. Drink now through 2022. 222,500 cases made, 29,000 cases imported."

    "With its 80% of red grapes, this cuvée has structure and fine richness. It has some bottle age while retaining freshness and offers a balanced Champagne that is seamlessly fruity and ready to drink."
